Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.
Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.
Relieve Your Family’s Burden
Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.
You Can Prepay
Prepayment generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation. We deposit all prepayments into a trust fund where it remains until needed. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes.
What If I Move?
We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments, and they’re easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States.
Where Do I Start?
First, check out our preplanning checklist to help you consider all your possibilities.
New York state law requires certain pre-need agreements to be irrevocable for applicants for receipt of supplemental security benefits under section two-hundred and nine of the social services law, or of medical assistance under section three-hundred and sixty-six of the social services law, and for the monies put into a trust under this agreement to be used only for funeral and burial expenses. If any money is left over after your funeral and burial expenses have been paid, it will go to the county. You may change your choice of funeral home at any time.
